There is a shop that offers kayak rentals, boats. Also quite a bit of nature for hiking trails. Lots of Fishing and if you just want to relax take the trolley to the beach

Lovely beach with great facilities. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We visited this beach on a Friday towards the end of August and It was really quiet. There is an $8 entry fee per car but it is well worth it.

A very nice park with a beautiful beach. Paid admission per car get you into this park and you park your car and either walk to the beach or shuttle. When we visited parking was tight but we found a spot and had to walk a little to get to the beach but well worth the effort.

This is a nice enough beach, I guess. If you're the type of person that gets all worked up over beaches(I'm not). My wife thought it looked nice, but we couldn't stay and enjoy it, because we couldn't even take our doggie of the car. Huh? A beach where you can't take a dog? I've lived on the Texas Gulf... More

Lovely beach, some shells, saw a manatee whilst walking to beach. Hated the restrooms. Store very poor. You need to be well prepared. Take everything with you. (Not always easy as a tourist)

We rented a double kayak and enjoyed a 5+ mile scenic tour of the mangroves. We spotted about a dozen manatee. A mommy and her calf swam right under... YES! right under our kayak.
